Eurostar Global Electronics Award Principal Contractor Tender For Fit-Out Of New 43,000 Sq Ft Warehouse To Carson Powell Construction 30/05/2022
Following a detailed tender process Eurostar Global Electronics (EGE) has selected Carson Powell Construction Ltd to undertake the internal fit-out of its new 43,000 sq ft warehouse, located at St Modwen Park Stoke Central, within the Ceramic Valley Enterprise Zone.
The announcement is another significant step in Eurostar’s growth and builds on its aspiration to expand its core mobile technology distribution business, as well as to open up new channels and markets.
Peter Carnall, Managing Director at Eurostar Global commented, "Since we concluded the deal for our new distribution and logistics centre with St Modwen last year, there has been a significant design process that, due to the impact of COVID-19 on the construction sector, has extended the time taken to find the right company to complete the warehouse fit out. It has also been important to select a partner with the right approach and skill set, to undertake this key project that will critically support the future growth of the business.
It’s great to have Carson Powell on board as they are a local business with a good reputation. They have responded to all the needs of the business throughout the tender process and have the experience required to complete this complex and challenging project.
We’re really excited about starting the project and working with them, to complete our transition later this year into what will be the foundation for growth throughout the next 5 years."
Brett Watmough, Sales and Purchasing Director of EGE also commented, “The last two years have enabled us to look at our core business and work out where the key opportunities are. It also helped us to continue developing the business profitability to help fund growth and expansion and why we’re now embarking on the development of our new warehouse.
Our new facility will support the development of new opportunities and relationships with vendors, retailers and resellers, all of which will continue to be supported by our outstanding account management team. We can’t wait to get into the new building as it will be a fantastic new working environment, that represents a springboard to the next phase of growth for EGE.”
Rob Longman, Director at Carson Powell who oversaw the tender submission commented, “We’re really pleased to be selected for this project with Eurostar Global Electronics. It’s a great opportunity to be working with a local company that’s got growth aspirations and is expanding. To be part of this development and to help support the aspirations of both Peter and Brett in building a first-class warehouse and distribution facility, is really exciting for Carson Powell and we’re delighted to be involved in the development.”
Work on the fit-out starts on the 30th May 2022 and will take up to 16 weeks to complete, and will include the installation of a state-of-the-art security system, multi-tier warehousing facilities and specialist mobile device handling stations.
